Welcome to the Precipitation Data and Information Services Center (PDISC). Here are some links to help you get started:
Global Precipitation Mission (GPM)
An international satellite mission to be launched by NASA and JAXA in 2014 that will set new standards for precipitation measurements worldwide using a network of satellites united by the GPM Core Observatory. For more information on the mission visit the Precipitation Measurement Missions informational web site.
The GES DISC will archive the data and provide the same expansive services currently offered to the user community for the TRMM data products. More information will be available as the data gets closer to the launch of the mission.
Search for Precipitation Data
TRMM data can be located using our new fast and efficient search interface Mirador.
Giovanni TOVAS, a member of the Giovanni (GES-DISC DAAC On-line Visualization and Analysis System) family,provides users with an easy-to-use, Web-based interface for the visualization and analysis of Earth Science data without having to download the data first.
PDISC Guide for New Users
For users new to the PDISC, we offer a getting started guide.
Precipitation Data Services at the DISC
Facilitate data access, information processing to support precipitation research and decision making
Nurture cross disciplinary precipitation related research, such as energy and water cycle, aerosol-precipitation interactions
The data holdings at the PDISC consist of remote sensing, in-situ and forecast (to be added in the future) precipitation and ancillary data. The PDISC also provides access to near-real-time and historical precipitation data. The TRMM Online Visualization and Analysis System TOVAS provides a fast and easy way to access the most popular products. While you're here, check out:
